It's clear that F1 teams gather 'intelligence' on other teams that for sportsmanship's sake, they should not... But it's still a major cheating step away from directing a driver to crash, or if the idea came from said driver, accepting such plan.
And, what logically comes next to that type of thing is, bribing race officials, or even directing your #2 driver to crash into competition for #1 driver, right?
Good riddance, Flav!
With that type of spirit, maybe he has a career a president of a big Italian soccer team...
